During testing, all HTT are manually set to 200MHZ.  Command rate was set at 1T and only the normal CAS, TRCD, TRP, TRAS were adjusted to 2-2-2-5. 

Sysmark 2004

Sysmark2004 is a very common benchmark used to measure a system's potential in performance.  It goes through long and grueling tests that include compression and decompression and office intensive programs.


3DMark is probably the overclocker's favorite benchmark.  Unlike 3DMark2003, which stresses mainly the video card, 3DMark2001SE tests all of the system's main components.  Increasing the CPU speed, memory speed, and video card speeds will result in higher results in the final score.  The NF8 hangs in there as the second fastest motherboard out of all tested.


The PCMark2004 system benchmark puts the entire system to work.  Again, the NF8 hangs in to be the second fastest board.


PCMark2002 is older than PCMark2004 but still very similar.  The NF8 scored pretty well in this department.  It's just right behind the K8N-E.
